Whole Body Cryotherapy
Invented in 1978 by a Japanese Rheumatologist for the treatment of arthritis, cryotherapy has been established through decades of studies as a powerful treatment for auto-immune disorders. More recently, it has become popular as a means of athletic recovery and increasing physical performance. It is not a medical procedure, but a non-invasive alternative for individuals seeking faster recovery and improved overall health.
What to Expect
The CryoBar utilizes top-of-the-line Juka Cryosauna equipment to provide Whole Body Cryotherapy treatments at all locations. Step into the chamber and experience the amazing restorative effects of cryotherapy in just three minutes!
The chamber is cooled using vaporized nitrogen to the optimal treatment temperature ranging between -225°F and -250°F. Once you step into the chamber the vaporized nitrogen will chill the skin’s surface layer, sending your body into a natural fight or flight response. Blood vessels will constrict, redirecting blood away from your extremities to your core to protect your organs. Your body will supercharge the blood with anti-inflammatory proteins and oxygen, flush out excess white blood cells, and boost your metabolic rate.
Exposure to extreme cold temperatures will also stimulate your body’s natural response to produce more collagen protein. Collagen is the number one protein used to improve skin elasticity and repair all of your muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments.
Upon exiting the cryosauna, your blood vessels will dilate and rush the oxygen rich blood and endorphins back throughout the body and your brain will direct the collagen to the areas it is most needed. In an effort to warm up and come back to an equilibrium, your body will undergo a metabolic reaction and burn between 500-800 calories in the five hours post-treatment.
One three-minute Whole Body Cryotherapy session is the equivalent in benefits to a 20-30 minute ice bath. However, with an ice bath there is down time associated as it is chilling your muscle tissue. There is no downtime with cryotherapy.
Before entering the Cryosauna, clients are required to remove all jewelry. They will be given gloves, socks, slippers and a robe to wear into the treatment room. Men are also required to wear underwear or shorts.
All clothing worn in Cryosauna must be dry.
